Hollaaaaa It’s My Birthdaayyy Weekend!!

Although I work today and it’s my birthday, I can expect big things!

Just like this is BIG for you too because it’s Friday and I’m posting! Yippie! I should probably do this more, but I am just so busy!

Today is all about moi! (If any other blogger shares my birthday then Happy Birthday to you too!)

First off let me say that I am getting some cupcakes today! YUM! They will be coming from Crumbs! Their cakes are sooooo BOMB! If you are ever near one, check it out or head on over to their weibsite:


They say in the first 5 minutes your mom takes a while to realize you are beautiful.

In the first 5 hours is when she falls in love with you. Soooo…..

Hmm….when I was 5 hours young, was I a constant wailer?

At 5 days old, I think I broke some hearts! πŸ™‚

If only I could see myself at 5 weeks old…..my big growing eyes and mini tantrums for love and affection…

Sometimes I wish I remember as far back as 5 months! What was my facial expression when my birthday was celebrated? Hmmm…..


(Do I sound like a 5 year old again? I probably do, but oops! I think I deserve a moment hehe)

happybirthday tome

15 year old me would probably tell everyone it’s my birthday! That includes everyone that I would be around.

The great 25! I am excitedΒ for this, yet dreading it all at the same time.

As I take a trip down memory lane, I can say 25 is aΒ milestone. I am still climbing problematic hills, I can’t reach milestones yet! It crept up on me.


When I am out celebrating and I hear any “birthday” songs, this is going to be me:

But Hollaaa to #TeamGemini!

Where all the Gemini’s at? πŸ˜‰

This is how I am going to wake up! πŸ˜€

Every year this is my new anthem!

Selena Gomez, “Birthday” (Super catchy song)

It’s also a teary eyed moment because I miss my grandma every year. She’s been in my heart ever since she left. While her birthday is in Jan, I always included her in mine all the time. R. I. P. my sweet! ❀

Dearest Grandma,

You were the best! Grandma always know best! It’s not the same without you. When you were around, you made my days better. Always smiling and giving me your wisdom. I could never leave your house as it was so comfy. It was much safer than mine ever was. I enjoyed my peace and quiet, except for when my uncle wouldn’t shut up!

You kept me at peace. I will always love you and if this doesn’t show it, then I don’t know what to tell you! I know you are always looking down at me, sprinkling your ways that lead me to becoming successful and be the best person I can be. I appreciate you and sometimes I wish you were still here. You were the last person left that gave a damn about me. You went into a long slumber and are missed.

So on my birthday, I celebrate for you. On my birthday you never forgot about me. You made me dinner, bought me things I wanted and spent the whole day and night with me. You watched what I wanted even if it didn’t make sense. For that, I will never ever forget about you.

So I celebrate with you on my mind.


Your crazy granddaughter! πŸ™‚

      • Geminis love communicating. That’s my number one thing. I don’t have any Gemini friends. I always wanted some. At least one. What did you do for your birthday if you don’t mind me asking? Is there a post about it?
